Message by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Nowruz
March 20, 2018
Har Ruz etan Nowrouz, Nowruz etan Pyrouz.
Today, communities in Canada and around the world will celebrate Nowruz and the Persian New Year.
Nowruz – new day – is a chance to celebrate the first day of spring and the renewal of nature and look forward to the coming year with hope.
Friends and families will gather around the haft-seen table to exchange gifts, enjoy music and food, and give thanks for this year’s blessings.
Here in Canada, Nowruz is a chance to honour the many communities that observe this day and their many contributions to building a better Canada.
On behalf of our family, Sophie and I wish peace, health and happiness to all those who are celebrating today.
